Pros

Color contrast is of very high quality - balance between hues and black levels provides clear, viviid picture

1 agrees

Very simple to set up - many users will only be required to run a single HDMI cable for full content support

1 agrees

600Hz processing provides excellent realism amongst live sports and action content - minimizes blurring and preserves color contrast

1 agrees

Supports 1080p up-conversion amongst certain devices - Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and DirecTV HD boxes are fully supported

1 agrees

Excellent value at the price point - similar 50-inch models with HD-compatibility are offered at more than 2x the price

Anti-burn technology is a major selling point - prevents screen burn/burnt pixels common to many plasma units
